President Trump has gone from wanting to withdraw the US from Syria to laying the stage for a missile attack, because of their recent chemical attacks with the cooperation of France and the UK.
Whether it was going to be done by cruise missiles or by manned flights, we do not know. The exact time? We do not know. The objective is to end the use of chemical weapons and to stop Syria from attacking its own people. Independent sources are saying it is being done by piloted planes. The President left the length of the mission open ended.
He gave notice to be Russia and Iran in his short statement.
